Term Information

Accession
GO:0048018
Name
receptor ligand activity
Ontology
molecular_function
Synonyms
signaling molecule, signaling receptor ligand activity, vitamin D receptor activator activity, receptor agonist activity
Alternate IDs
GO:0071884
Definition
The activity of a gene product that interacts with a receptor to effect a change in the activity of the receptor. Ligands may be produced by the same, or different, cell that expresses the receptor. Ligands may diffuse extracellularly from their point of origin to the receiving cell, or remain attached to an adjacent cell surface (e.g. Notch ligands).
